It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.
